    Last week I was invited to the SeeMeeCnc offices, then we took a trip offsite to visit the Massive 16' tall delta they built.

    It is actually too large for their headquarters lol, so it is on display at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo, airplane museum.

    It's one crazy large printer. Cost about 150k for them to r&d and build.

    That thing is awesome. Does it pull in pellets with a vacuum?

    Yeah, I took that picture for you mike, I thought you would like that.

    Yup, a cheap $10 little vac, sucking up the pellets from the trash can.

    The awesome part is that it WORKS lol.

    That would be such a fun engineering challenge. Now if I could find a practical application for 8' tall plastic parts.

    Step 1: Print door and frame
    Step 2: Open door while still on printer
    Step 3: Awesome
    Step 4 (optional): Install door in house

    Where's the LCD Controller for this Mother?

    I'm guessing it's a 100 inch HD LCD ?

    Not like it needs to compensate o_O

    The only problem I see with this printer is that it wouldn't fit into my 8 foot tall ceiling apartment.

    When will the first print be made on it and what will they print?

    Looks like they printed that clock stand on the right next to the printer.

    Cura sliced it in 10 minutes. Slic3r is still working on it!

    Yeah, they printed that clock and the life sized print of the owners son.

    At their offices they had a large vase, and a kind of Incan/Aztec shield.

    I could think of quite a few things I could use this for. Would save me so much time and money.
